I asked the forest river/Rockwood rep and he said there is no other awning for popups and that the 8500 would not work as it has those vertical supports. The weight limit of the roof is 400 lbs, but he did not answer my question on whether or not there was a weight limit for the awning or if the awning weight would effect the function of the roof.
